Before my kids can leave every period, I have a routine they must follow...1. Sit 2. Be Quiet 3. Put your book in the top corner of your desk. I usually give them a heads up to the ringing of the bell. Here's what happened yesterday:
Mr. H: Ok, 30 seconds until the bell.
7th Grade Student: 10, 9, 8, wait a minute.
Mr. H: Really?
